Letter to the Editor: Say no to smokeless tobacco & e-cigarettes
The North Dakota House of Representatives supported HCR 3033 by only one vote and it now awaits action in the Senate. HCR 3033 is a resolution to study the feasibility of promoting the use of smokeless tobacco (snus and chew) as well as newer products like electronic cigarettes (e-cigs)...

Letter: Much-improved water system a great benefit
As a mother, hotel manager and resident of Watford City, I cannot say enough good things about the city's much-improved water system. Before service from the Western Area Water Supply project started a month ago, I had to bathe my children in the brown water that came out of our...

Letter: Presidential election lacking in honesty
The election is over and a new term begun. Mitt Romney was ahead on election morning. Just how honest was the election? For years, Democrats fought for open voting requiring no identification and Obama won every state that didn't fully require it. There are 15 states with photo...

Letter: Many questions surround gun control
Ever since the election, re-election, of Barack Obama, and especially since the tragic killings in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo. and Tucson, Ariz., there has been much talk of gun control and assault rifles (evidently, retreat rifles will be exempted somewhat). There has even been...

Letters: Parents sacrifice to send children to Catholic Schools
Parents sacrifice for school Catholic Schools are the best because my parents have to work and sacrifice to send me here. At our school the staff and teachers work as hard as they can. The cooks make perfect lunches like hot ham and cheese! The principal, Mrs. (Peggy) Mayer,...

Letter: Railroad report cherry picks data
The Dickinson Press published an article on Dec. 29 entitled "Trains carrying more oil across U.S. amid boom" that has some factual errors. It misleads readers about the vital role railroads are playing in meeting the growing need to transport crude oil throughout North America....

Letter: Politicians' 'solutions' may not be the answer
I came across a quote from an unknown author that said "Timothy McVeigh didn't use a gun." He killed 168 innocent people, 19 of which were children younger than age 6. He injured more than 680 innocent people and totally destroyed federal property. But you can still buy fertilizer...

Letter: Don't ignore land during development
As oil/gas facilities build out in North Dakota, further permanent harm to agricultural land must be prevented, while ensuring the land can be returned to an economically productive agricultural status.

Letter: Keep beauty, historical integrity of Killdeer Mountains
We appreciate the many benefits oil development has brought to our area. We're also concerned about the relentlessness and rapidity of the development, especially when it threatens areas precious to all North Dakotans.

Letter: Even with so many changes ND keeps happy spirit
I grew up in North Dakota and my mother still resides in Belfield where I visit on a regular basis. As you know, many changes have come to this area. The oil activity has created prosperity, growth and low unemployment. Along with that, it has also created problems, such as housing...

Letter: Property tax unfair, unjust, unworkable
Like many others, I received my annual property tax bill from the county confiscator and I'm hot boiling mad. Our legislators talk about how we need to fix the property tax system, having tried some 135 times to fix the system resulting in nothing more than enabling local subdivisions...
